What is Depression?

Depression is a common mental health disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. It is characterized by feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a loss of interest in activities that were once enjoyed. Unfortunately, depression is often linked to skin and body problems in today's society.

Skin and Body Depression:

Many individuals who suffer from skin and body conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, and alopecia, can develop negative thoughts and feelings about their appearance. This can lead to low self-esteem, self-consciousness, and even depression. The constant physical and emotional stress of living with a chronic skin or body condition can lead to feelings of hopelessness and despair.

Individuals with skin and body conditions can also face social isolation and discrimination. They may avoid social situations and feel self-conscious about their appearance, leading to feelings of loneliness and isolation.
It's important to seek help if you are struggling with depression due to a skin or body condition and we always advise to speak to your closest family and friends first to get some advice.
